The Story.
You are a prisoner in the
citadel in the City 17.
You and another person coming out of the combine pods, in the citadel. And when you wake up, you see the citadel looks very different than it did when you were captured by the combine. Now it's you and your new friend to get out of the citadel. And
out of City 17, before it’s too late and the Citadel will explode.
But when a group of combine stops the train. You and your friend would be shot. But when they are about to shoot, there came
some other rebels and saves you from being killed by the combine.
Soon after the rush you get to the surface, but it was not just city 17 as they are known. City 17 is totally destroyed and there is war in the entire city. Some time later, they go to a train station to get out of City 17. Before the Citadel will explode and they would die. 7 years later the combine came back and
take the control over
City 25.
And it’s up to you to get to City 25 And destroy the combine and the citadel, once and for all.

Nothing is original or will be...only a different 'perpective' changes this from hl2 to what it is, every map will have hl2 props hl2 textures hl2 prefabs...i just dont get any of these kinds of mods, there is just nothing new.
